Something has changed in the back yard and it’s good.  During the summer drought,  no birds were in the back yard. Water and food were put out for them, but there were no birds.

Yesterday,  about five or six appeared. This morning, robins, hummingbirds, sparrows and I-don’t-know-what-they’re-called were fluttering, flying, dipping into bushes, sitting on top of fruit trees bringing colour, movement, swishes, swirls sweet sounds and absolute delight and joy.

Feathered friends, the nest you made in the spring is still in the tree
and you’ll find string, ribbon and other things I’ve placed close by
to encourage you to make new nests. 
Welcome back!
